Sharing in Worship

We would normally offer a range of worship styles and opportunities to share in prayer and worship. You will find different styles, different times, and different days. In our more formal services we draw on the traditions of the United Reformed Church and the Methodist Church.

All these acts of worship have one thing at heart, however: an honest attempt to understand what it means to respond to Jesus’ command to ‘Follow me’.

New ways to worship

We are currently developing new ways to offer worship with our regular congregation and with anyone who would like to access digital ways of coming together for worship.

Worship in usual circumstances

In normal circumstances on a Sunday, a good number of people gather to share in morning worship at 10.30am. This service is often fairly traditional in format (but not over-formal), with challenging, relevant teaching and a mixture of styles of music.

What to expect

Sunday morning worship lasts about an hour and refreshments follow the service. The theme of the service is always made clear at the beginning; it is often based on the lectionary readings, or arise out of a particular series of themed services. Whilst the tone is usually calm and ordered, we provide ample opportunity for full congregational involvement and participation. We provide a printed order of service, which is available to see in advance here.
